Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

i know nothing about that place but it looks like they have locations in about 15 other cities. looks like they are opening one next year in midtown STL as well, next to IKEA in the new development with Alamo Drafthouse. this seems like a pretty good tenant for the Plaza, right? actually seems like ...

Re: Rye

i don't seek out fried chicken but Rye's is probably the best i've had. where in KC is better? i feel like there is kind of a limit on how good fried chicken can really be. i'll take a great roast chicken anyday!

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

I think that take is kind of stupid. i agree that there is a proliferation of generic, "birch & barrel" restaurants out there, which is not great but it's true in every city. the question is whether KC can still deliver above and beyond this level of restaurant - and i think it clearly does. krokstr...

Re: Bay Area short term job/suggestions/help

addendum: i’ve never crossed the golden gate so the entire west coast between marin and central oregon/crater lake is unknown to me. if time allows you should def. go up Hwy 1 from Marin to as far north as you are willing to go. Mendocino county is great - redwoods, epic rocky coasts, very pacific ...

Re: Bay Area short term job/suggestions/help

here is my 2 cents: if you're going to be in sonoma county, i honestly would not even bother with trying to pop down to SF (or OAK) , unless it's the weekend and you have all day (and maybe could consider staying overnight in the city). there is no fast, convenient, or pleasant way to get from anywh...

i went to a bar like that in Albany NY, which served free small cheese pizzas with every beer. pretty cool concept.

Re: City Corridor Happy Hour Deals

Antler Room has $6 HH cocktails that are strong and delicious, and I think they do HH on the weekends too. Also wine specials.

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

"parenthood" is a deep cut. i'm not sure i've ever seen it, although the not-really-related TV series is must-see content. i think STL is a really interesting place. i am sure folks who live there feel a lot of momentum and have optimism for the city, but as an outsider it's hard to look past the fa...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

all this said, i should probably do more of an apples-to-apples comparison of lifestyle. nearly all of the times i've been to STL, it's to visit friends or family and we end up driving all over creation to see a bunch of stuff. when youre bouncing around south city, downtown, CWE, clayton/U City, le...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

i've said this elsewhere, but my main beef with STL is that the very real "cool factor" and abundant charm seems relatively outweighed by the "pain in the ass factor" of relatively bad traffic and attitude compared to KC or other cities. some cities are so cool and exciting it's worth an increase i...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

while i agree 100% with the idea of STL seeming "closed-off" and KC seeming comparatively "open," i really have no idea why i have this impression. what accounts for this? i think STL is cursed (and i guess also blessed) by having a very large urban core. it's so large, and it emptied out so much, t...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

i've been to maybe 40 airports and, to be honest, other than LAX and DIA, i am not sure i can picture in my mind the exterior of any one of them. i can picture aspects of the interior of a few airports in my mind, but not b/c of striking design--mostly b/c of some bad memory of being delayed and bei...
